Posted in 2018, Mind with tags , , , , on February 2, 2018 by theboldcorsicanflame

Male rats probably shouldn’t be lining up for the iPhone X, according to a massive new government study.

The 10-year, $25-million study by the National Toxicology Program found subjecting the bro-dents to high levels of radiofrequency radiation — the radio waves used by cell phones — resulted in tumors growing around male rats’ hearts, although female rats and mice of either gender didn’t suffer the same consequences.

The vermins’ entire bodies were blasted with way higher levels of the radiation than is allowed for cell phone communication, however, so the scientists warned against drawing links to Snapchat-addicted humans (…)

I will be a hummingbird – Wangari Maathai

When confronted with adversity, when the odds are stacked up against you, you can either stand aside – helpless, frozen with fear – or do the best you can. Nobel Laureate Wangari Maathai stood up to seemingly insurmountable challenges all her life, and won. Like the hummingbird in this story; to give up was never an option for her. Her spirit lives on in the millions of trees she helped plant.

The Kindness School

Most schools have academics as a core and focus on developing character as a secondary motive. However, the Kindness School has a different approach to student learning.

The Puget Sound Community School in Seattle, Washington is a 5-day-a-week school rooted in helping kids from grades 6-10 learn about character and kindness. There are no required academic classes, but classes where students take subjects that interest them.

In addition to academic classes, the students are taking classes that help develop their character within their school and community as a whole. Students get to go into their community to help spread love and kindness to learn how to put their kindness into action.

The Oldest Man In The World 256 Years Breaks The Silence Before His Death And Reveals Its Secret To The World

The New York Times article from 1930 shows that Wu Chung-Chieh, a professor on the Chengdu University, discovered some Imperial Chinese government records from 1827 congratulating Li Ching-Yuen on his 150th birthday. He went further with the documents, later congratulating him on his 200th birthday in 1877. A New York Times correspondent in 1928 wrote that several of the old men in Li’s neighborhood stated that when their grandfathers were boys, they knew him and at that time he was a grown man.

Li Ching Yuen in fact began his herbalist career when he was 10. He was gathering herbs in the mountain ranges and he learned of their potency for longevity. For nearly 40 years, he lived on a diet of herbs like wild ginseng, lingzhi, goji berry, gotu kola and he shoo wu and rice wine. In 1749, when he was 71 years old, he is joining the Chinese army as teacher of martial arts. Li was known as a much-loved figure in his community. He was married 23 times and is a father of more than 200 children.

According to the commonly accepted tales that were told in his province, Li was able to read and write since he was a child, and by his 10th birthday had traveled in Shansi, Tibet, Kansu, Annam, Siam and Manchuria in order to gather some herbs. For the first 100 years he continued with his occupation. Then he switched to selling herbs that the others were gathering. He sold wild ginseng, lingzhi, goji berry, he shou wu and gotu kola as well as some other Chinese herbs, and he lived of a diet of these herbs and the rice wine.

He Wasn’t The Only One

As one of the Li’s supporters said, once he had encountered a man who was more than 500 years old, who taught him of the Qigong exercises and dietary recommendations which would help him to extend his lifespan to superhuman proportions. Apart from Qigong and herb-rich diet, what more can we learn from this Master of Longevity?
